(a) On December 21, 2010, Webster Financial Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Barclays Capital Inc. relating to the offering (the “Offering”) of 6,630,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”). A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is included as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Additionally, the opinion and consent of Hogan Lovells US LLP as to the validity of the Common Stock of the Company offered pursuant to the Prospectus Supplement dated December 21, 2010 is incorporated by reference into the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-155929) as an exhibit thereto.

(b) In conjunction with the Offering, on December 21, 2010, the Company entered into a Letter Agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with Warburg Pincus Private Equity X, L.P. (“Warburg Pincus”) and one of its affiliates, relating to the purchase of 2,069,848 shares of Company Common Stock (the “Warburg Shares”) pursuant to existing contractual rights. As a result of the Offering, Warburg Pincus had the right to purchase, at the same price per share, net of underwriting discounts and commissions, as offered to the public, such number of shares of Common Stock as required to enable it to maintain its proportionate interest in the Company on an as-coverted basis immediately prior to the issuance of the shares offered in the Offering. The purchase price of the common shares was $17.605 per share, which was the price to the public in the Offering net of underwriting discounts and commissions. The Company received approximately $36.4 million, before expenses, from the sale of these shares.

The Warburg Shares were issued pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), under circumstances that comply with the requirements of Section 4(2) of the Act. The Warburg Shares were not registered under the Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Act or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Act.

A copy of the Letter Agreement is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
